Car crashes into Pizza Market
By GREG KWASNIK
A driver crashed his car into a takeout window at the Pizza Market restaurant on South Mast Road in Goffstown on Monday, Jan. 18, causing no injuries and only minor damage to the building, police said.
“There is some minor structural damage to the exterior wall, and some cosmetic damage inside and outside,” said Lt. Robert Browne. Police did not release the name of the driver.
Pizza Market owner Sharon Glatas said she was shocked by the collision, which occurred at around 1:30 p.m.
“Someone came in and instead of hitting the break, his foot hit the gas,” Glatas said. “It was just loud – a big ‘bang’ noise.”
The restaurant’s guests and staff were evacuated from the building for about 10 minutes after the crash, as police and fire officials surveyed the damage. An hour later, the car was gone and Glatas was still serving pizza.
“This is the first time they’ve hit our building,” said Glatas, who said that several cars have hit the restaurant’s signs in the past.
Glatsas said she was glad none of her employees were near the window at the time of the accident. The counter under the window currently holds a large soup warmer.
“One of our employees was just going over to stir it, so thank God,” Glatsas said. “If it was going to happen, it happened at the right time.”
